I'm Screwed

Look what I did. I dropped my makeup bag, and the mirror broke.
This means I'm going to suffer from bad luck until I'm 43 years old, if the superstition is correct.

Here you go, all better:

The Cause:
There are two theories for why breaking a mirror brings 7 years bad luck. One is that the gods communicate through mirrors, and if it breaks, the gods don't want you to see the bad luck in your future!

The other theory is that breaking a mirror, in effect, shatters the soul. The soul is so hurt by this, that it demands 7 years bad luck in payment. The first makers of glass mirrors, the Romans, believed that life was renewed every 7 years, like being born again. This was why after 7 years, you're off the hook.

If an untouched mirror in your house falls and breaks, it foretells a death.

Don't give mirrors as gifts; receiving them is also bad luck.

The Cure:
1. Grind the mirror shards into dust. This ensures no shattered reflection can be seen.
2. Bury the pieces outside by moonlight (after waiting 7 hours). OR
3. Throw the pieces in a south-flowing stream. Wait 7 hours, and your bad luck will be washed away!

Maybe you should ignore all of that last comment except for the cures.

I have about 5 years of my sentence left.

I vote for grinding the mirror shards into dust, we have no south flowing streams here, (nothing's flowing) It was -30 last night. And as for burying the glass, I'm pretty sure the ground is frosted at least 3 feet down, I wouldn't be able to stick a toothpick in the ground right now. Yeah, it sucks to be us.

Hope you have a good week. Let us know how it goes.

Don't walk under any ladders or open up any umbrellas inside, Hahahah.

I have broken so many mirrors in my short lifetime....but I have moments where I'm pretty lucky. I guess it depends on how you look at things.

Peter really amazes me sometimes.

Personally, I think retail therapy is the way to go here. Buy a new makeup mirror. Throw the old one away. Move on.

That's not a bad idea, KM. The one I broke was about 15 years old.

I'm not superstitious about mirrors. However, you do have an opportunity here - you can buy a new makeup bag! New stuff is good.

I'm all for the new stuff.
I can't believe you've had it for that long without breaking it. That's pretty impressive.
And Peter knows everything.
You could get a puppy...
; )
I'm apologizing in advance if you don't see me comment. I'm reading. This puppy thing is harder than a baby. I think I was delusional when I got her.
(I seriously thought about naming her your name, DH, but didn't know if you'd like that or not! lol.)

Peter: I hate Holmes, too, btw. Rocky really likes him. I think he's a serial killer who's fooling everyone. I can see through him.

I think my name is a great one for a dog. Plus, my Chinese astrological sign is the Dog.
